WHEN YOU NEED JUST THE BASIC INFO:

  • File TYPES

    Best file types if you have them are vector, EPS, PDF, AI, SVG, we also accept PSD, JPG and PNG - but see below about specs.

  • SIZE MATTERS

    Always make your file AT LEAST 300dpi and at the size you want the artwork printed. Small, unusable artwork results in artwork charges.

  • OUTLINE FONTS

    We don't have every font ever made so make sure to rasterize or convert yoour fonts to outlines before sending files to us.

  • COLOURS

    If you're particular about a colour make sure to include the pantone code (from a physical book for accuracy) or talk to us about colour.

  • HALFTONES

    If you have halftones in your art either ask us first for the angle/frequency or let us halftone it...you don't want a fine, unprintable gradient that costs more to fix!

There are a lot of things to cover for screen printing a job so we really recommend you view the full artwork guide to get a better understanding of what we expect in a file. But if you’re in a rush, follow the key points above and you should be ok.

THE FULL ARTWORK GUIDE

Not sure if you got it from the above text...but we recommend you read the full artwork guide, it'll give you a better idea of how things work - honest!

PRODUCT CODE:JH051

Something a bit more unique to the mix is the AWD Urban Varsity, a bit of a mixture between a heavyweight zipped hoodie and a varsity jacket. As with all of the AWD range, it takes a print very well and retains vibrant colours for years. It comes with some chunky hood cords that make this feel like a much more expensive product.

It’s limited to only 3 colours, but is definitely a statement piece. Other fashionable AWD products to look at would be the JH022 Tie Dye Hood, JH021 Cross Neck Hood and JH103 Game Day Hood – all heavy weight statement pieces.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

These are some of the questions we get asked, if there’s something that you would like to know that isn’t on the site or here, just drop us a message!

The minimum depends on the type of printing that you are getting done, if it's vinyl then the minimum is just a single item.

If it's screen print then the lowest amount is 12 pieces of the same print, unless you are paying for sampling.

We run most of our orders on a 2 week turnaround, but do offer our panic button service for rush orders.

We can sometimes print on the same day if we have the stock in store or if you provide your own garments and the print schedule allows for it. Have a chat with us if you need something fast, and never be afraid to ask!

Ah...this fabled question, a good response would be "how long is a piece of string?"

Printing is bespoke to every job, the amount of colours, placements, sizing, base garment and print type all affect the final price, so until we get some information we really can't say.

Can I pay with donuts?

Ok, maybe this one is asked frequently… but as much as Stewart would say yes, unfortunately we can’t accept donuts as a form of payment. They can always be provided as a nice treat though!

Are your inks vegan?

Yes, they are! The brand of plastisol ink and emulsion that we use has no animal product in the production.

Yes, mixing and matching garments with the same print is a great way to grow a brand and save on costs to you. As long as the print is the same it makes no difference to us if its on a t-shirt, a vest, a hoodie or anything in between.

Yes, don't feel obliged to buy garments from us. If you want to provide your own that's completely fine!

We recommend only picking cotton or poly/cotton blends. These offer the most consistent print results, if you bring us anything thats a different fabric mix the results may not be the same/we may not be able to print on it.

We will talk with you about this when you provide your own clothing.

Yes, on request we can print samples. Vinyl samples are charged at a singles price, screen printed samples will incur the setup costs for the screens.

If the order you've placed is substantial and you need to pay in chunks, we can arrange it through a payment gateway called partia.ly - this will add a 5% fee to your order but allow you to pay for the order over an agreed timescale rather than everything up front.

Can I print a photo on tshirt?

Yes! If its a small amount of shirts then we can print your photo on digital print material and apply it to the shirt.

If you’re looking at a lot of shirts then we can look at halftoning your photograph for screenprinting.
